SYMPATHETIC TRUNK

SUPERIOR CERVICAL GANGLION
-some postganglionic sympathetic fibers...
b. Some postganglionic sympathetic fibers from the superior cervical
ganglion form gray rami communicantes which join ventral rami of
spinal nerves Cl to C4 for distribution to blood vessels as well as
arrector pili muscles and sweat glands in the skin; other postgangli-
onic sympathetic fibers from the superior cervical ganglion form the
superior cervical cardiac nerves that descend into the thorax to sup-
ply the heart
SYMPATHETIC TRUNK

MIDDLE CERVICAL GANGLION
-located anterior to...
3. Middle cervical ganglion

a. Located anterior to the transverse process of vertebra C6; some fibers
from the middle cervical ganglion form the ansa subclavia by pass-
ing in front ofthe subclavian artery and looping posteriorly to join
the inferior cervical ganglion

3. Middle cervical ganglion

b. Some postganglionic sympathetic fibers from the middle cervical
ganglion form gray rami communicantes which join ventral rami of
spinal nerves C5 and C6 for distribution to blood vessels as well as
arrector pili muscles and sweat glands in the skin; other postgangli-
onic sympathetic fibers from the middle cervical ganglion form the
middle cervical cardiac nerves that descend into the thorax to sup-
ply the heart
SYMPATHETIC TRUNK

INFERIOR CERVICAL GANGLION
-often fuses with the...
4. Inferior cervical ganglion

a. Often fuses with the first thoracic ganglion to form the stellate or
cervicothoracic ganglion; lies between the vertebral artery and trans-
verse process of vertebra C7
SYMPATHETIC TRUNK

INFERIOR CERVICAL GANGLION
-some postganglionic sympathetic fibers...
4. Inferior cervical ganglion

b. Some postganglionic sympathetic fibers from the inferior cervical
ganglion form gray rami communicantes which join ventral rami of
spinal nerves C7 and C8 for distribution to blood vessels as well as
arrector pili muscles and sweat glands in the skin; other postgangli-
onic sympathetic fibers from the inferior cervical ganglion form the
inferior cervical cardiac nerves that descend into the thorax to sup-
ply the heart
COMMON CAROTID ARTERY

-on the right side...
A. Common carotid artery

1. On the right side, the common carotid artery arises from the brachio-
cephalic trunk and, on the left side, it arises from the aortic arch; ascends
in the carotid sheath medial to the internal jugular vein
COMMON CAROTID ARTERY

-its distal end is?
-forming?
A. Common carotid artery

2. Its distal end is dilated, forming the carotid sinus, a sensor of blood pres-
sure that receives sensory innervation from the glossopharyngeal nerve
